Smith Street, Brooklyn

CA’s project

CA & The Hound celebrate at a Diner… Isn’t this a great idea… Of course the difference between prose writers and poetry writers is that FICTION writers would charge for this whereas poets, as usual, give it away.

Good God! The resemblence is uncanny! John Lennon’s Face?“Keith Andrews (pictured) of Wavertree, Liverpool (England) was one of the first people to notice a strange simulacrum of John Lennon’s face on a stone gatepost in Newcastle Road – the road where John Lennon was born in 1940. The gatepost was being stripped of its 40-year-layer...

Awesome woman of the week

This is a tough call for a new category of posting, but the inaugural award goes to Suzan-Lori Parks, playwright, muse, muse-lover, agitator, and individual. She does the work for the work, not for the reviews. She does the work that engages her, not what she thinks will be produced, or published. And sometimes that...

Excellent poems in here from Mairead Byrne! And a great looking line up of chapbooks.

Quote of the week

Let’s cut right to the chase. With words that made my blood run cold. “We’re not going to beat you or even threaten you. We’re going to kill you by raping you.” Those words haunt the painful memory of Athanasie Mukarwego. They are the words spoken by the men who raped and humiliated this Rwandan...

Love these gals…

Sook-Yin Lee & Short Bus

Okay, so who doesn’t have a crush on Sook-Yin Lee? And isn’t she the coolest thing about CBC?? And have you seen Short Bus?

Philly is CA. Here’s another interview and you must go to the end to see the most excellent photo of CA and Jen Benka.

new Marcia Hafif at Becker, Philadelphia

Second St. 215.925.5389 After years of investigating single colour panels, abstract minimalist painter Marcia Hafif has moved to incorporate two colors per canvas.

Strange Canadian Interviews…

Here’s a really odd one…Iggy Pop interviewed on the CBC March 11, 1977. And he doesn’t get to play, or to light that cigarette.

Listening in on Canada

I love BBC for classical (though I’ll listen to Jurgen Goethe talk about just about anything over on CBC Radio 2) but CBC’s Radio 3 has it all going on at the moment. There’s just a lot of fabulous new musical energy north of the border. Great weekly podcasts…sign up here.Also, and this is random,...

Queens

Who do you turn to? Who do you look to for role models of women who embody power? One scene that works for me is Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth, particularly the scene were she roars: I am not your Elizabeth! I am no man’s Elizabeth! And if you think to rule here you are mistaken!...

reading the newspaper: beaulieu

To create the paintings above poet and artist derek beaulieu read the Thursday July 18, 2002 edition of The Calgary Herald, and continued, over the next two years, to read the same day’s newspaper… That alone is a feat, that alone is a complete reversal of the deeply ingrained instructiveness of our culture, how we...

Why I’m not discussing feminism

Wondering what happens when men speak is a lifetime occupation. All over the globe women with their heads between their knees, wondering. This is an occupation. This wondering. How do men weep? Is it like thinking? When men think is there a little pause before speaking? Why have they not changed the world, men? How...
